IReady

Starting this year, your student will also be taking a reading and math assessment called iReady. We'll be using this assessment to monitor their academic growth in both areas of learning.


During our Fall Parent-Teacher conferences, we'll provide more information to parents. This will include your student's scores from the first part of the quarter. We'll share additional academic growth as your student progresses through the year. This interactive monitoring tool will help us give your student more individualized learning.
